Very useful and looks pretty straight forward. Many thanks.
I used the Friedland D117 and the diagram below. no need for anything else. That said there is an small delay (about 2-3 seconds) between the doorbell press and the mechanical chime going off. No delays with the notifications with the Ring notifications though. It’s not perfect but it’s about as good as it gets using a mechanical chime. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Friedland-Own-brand-packaging-D117/dp/B0001NPYZ2
Hi jaypr, I’m new to this, and have read from comments that the ring doorbell pro is in many ways preferable to the battery variants. I can’t help thinking that having a mechanical ringer or chime alongside is the way to go. Looking at your set up, does it go like this: -Transformer to mechanical chime (at the top of the transformer use connector 1 and connector 4 to the chime). -Chime to Ring Doorbell Pro (two wires from chime to doorbell as per normal). Or is it: -One of either connector 1 or 4 of the transformer wire to one of the the ring doorbell pro connectors. -the other ring doorbell pro connector wire to the chime. -the chime going to the other (available) connector at the top of the transformer (1 or 4)? Can I ask, which make/model your chime is - perhaps I can follow that wiring logic? Edit: sorry I now notice there is a power pro kit v2 that is supposed to be involved. However I can guess it is so that (at least in my second scenario above) the mechanical ringer isn’t constantly ringing.
I bought it from eBay ages ago. You can get them from there or Amazon or other electrical websites. Just do a search for 2 module enclosure.
Jaypr, what did you use to encase your transformer? Mine is out in the wild, so I want to protect it from the kids, or rather the other way round. Thanks B
